1 Evaluating Solutions Future Problem Solving Training Steps 4 and 5

2 There is a detailed description of each step in the booklet Future Problem Solving Student Guide Workbook Ill put the page number you can refer to at the top of the page. So we can see one example from the beginning, Ill use some of what we did in previous Power Points. Remember the Ant and the Grasshopper? Steps One through Five

3 Step One: See Page 8 9. How can we get the grasshopper to value storing food? 10. How can we teach the ant more diplomacy? Kindness? Tact? Understanding? 11. How can we get the grasshopper to visualize winter without food? 12. How can we get the grasshopper to understand the shelf-life of food? 13. How can we get the grasshopper to find winter food? 14. How can we get the grasshopper to dialogue with other insects? 15. How can we help the grasshopper find kinder friends. 16. How can we help the grasshopper understand the welfare system? 17. How can we get the grasshopper to raid the ants supplies? 18. How can we create simulation game so the grasshopper would get the idea before almost dying? 19. How can we make sure the grasshopper doesnt see eating ants so he can die in peace? 20. How can we teach the grasshopper more about life cycles so he would know how grasshoppers differ from ants and not get his hopes up for his kind?

4 Step Two: See Pages How can we help the grasshopper find kinder friends. The Challenge: 15. How can we help the grasshopper find kinder friends. Condition Phrase: Because there is no way the ant is going to share with the grasshopper, and because ants would rather give advise than teach the poor grasshopper their ways… Stem: How might we… KVP: help the grasshopper find kinder friends. Purpose: So that he wont starve to death.

5 Step Two: Altogether Because there is no way the ant is going to share with the grasshopper, and because ants would rather give advise than teach the poor grasshopper their ways, how might we help the grasshopper find kinder friends so that he wont starve to death.

6 A. Throw a party but invite no ants. B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. C. Give him an reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. Step Three: See Pages 12-13

7 Step Four: See Page 14 All of these ideas look good, but we need to select one to work on. There are better ways to select criteria in the FPS Guide Workbook. 1. Which idea will cost the least? 2. Which idea will most people accept? 3. Which idea might have good side effects? 4. Which idea is the easiest to use? 5. Which idea is most likely to work?

8 Step Five: See Page 15 The next slide has a chart with the criteria and my five solutions. If you want to get practice on this step, print that chart and fill in each box with the numbers you think fit best. Then look at the rest of this Power Point to see how I filled it in. Rank them from 1 to 5, with 5 being The best.

9 Step Five: See Page 15

10 If you are finished with your answers or just want to see what I wrote so it makes better sense, proceed to the next slide. You dont need to give your reasons. I did so that you could see inside of my head.

11 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below1.Which idea will cost the least? A. Throw a party but invite no ants. Decorations, Food, Party Favors, Announcements: $20 = 3 B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. Books, a Tutor, Time: $100 = 2 C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. Pay the inventor to create the design and a factory to produce it: $1000 = 1 D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. The Charlottes Web book: about $5 = 4 E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. Find the song on-line: $0 = 5

12 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below 2.Which idea will most insects accept? A. Throw a party but invite no ants. All but the ants might accept = 1 B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. The spiders would like that but the grasshopper doesnt want to work that hard = 3 C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. The worms would like that but there are fewer worms than spiders= 2 D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. The spiders would like that = 4 E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. No one would care because he has a good voice = 5

13 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below 3.Which idea might have good side effects? A. Throw a party but invite no ants. Many insects might become friends = 3 B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. He might convince spiders to stop eating grasshoppers = 5 C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. Worms will have a reason besides the rain to surface = 1 D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. He might also learn to help friends (like Charlotte), not just get help from them (like Templeton) = 2 E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. He might use other songs and become a goal oriented grasshopper = 4

14 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below 4.Which idea is the easiest to use? A. Throw a party but invite no ants. It is more work to read a book that party = 3 B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. It take a long time to learn a language = 1 C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. Putting the periscope in the ground and speaking is pretty easy = 5 D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. It takes a while to read the book but reading is easier than learning a language = 2 E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. Because of the grasshoppers talents, learning a short song is much easier than throwing a party = 4

15 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below 5. Which idea is most likely to work? A. Throw a party but invite no ants. Who can resist a party? = 3 B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders. It may take a while to change the culture of eating grasshoppers to talking to them = 1 C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat. It is good to have friends but worms may not be the best insects to help a grasshopper learn winter survival skills = 2 D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly. If you are really good at being friendly, there are so many insects that will want to be helpful = 5 E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind. Being goal oriented will help you with finding food and making friends = 4

16 The Ant and the Grasshopper Step Four Criteria to the Right Step Three Ideas Below 1.Which idea will cost the least? 2.Which idea will most people accept? 3.Which idea might have good side effects? 4.Which idea is the easies t to use? 5.Which idea is most likely to work?Total A. Throw a party but invite no ants B. Teach the grasshopper the language of the spiders C. Give him a reversed periscope with speakers so he can see worms and invite them up for a chat D. Have him read Charlotte's Web so he can learn how to be friendly E. Teach him a song about friendship so he can keep his goal in his mind
